Very nice presentation of the food. They added rose water to the food, which was very different. Really enjoyed my joojeh with 3 different kinds of rice (zereshk polo, berenj sefid, and baghali polo). Definitely not a typical kabab experience. Needed more salt in the rice. While interesting, I prefer my rose water in my desert.

Good chicken kebab. Three kind of rice which has rose-water in it. Zeresh-polo was not as special.
This place is good for big groups in central london as there are always seats available. Management should work to refurbish of the washroom and services.

I came to this restaurant around 5pm when it was quiet. The owner warmly welcomed me and gave a lovely introduction to the various dishes helping me decide what to have; the Sultani Joojeh with a pomegranate juice.
Being my first ever experience of Iranian/Persian cuisine I have no source for comparison however this restaurant is recommended on its authenticity and I found the food delicious. The meat beautifully came apart, the tomato sauce that came with the chicken wonderful and I enjoyed all three varieties of rice (would not have thought cinnamon worked in rice).
If you are in the Covent Garden / Leicester Square area and fancy trying something different I really recommend this restaurant. The price is more than some others in the area but I wouldn't say expensive and I was happy to pay it given the quality.
